I have been a governor for 3 years now and keep finding things that I should have known about in the first few weeks. Much of this is organisations, events, companies selling resources, software packages, new initiatives etc etc. With the addition of governors to Edubase which is due for full rollout in September it seems our chaotic government has an ideal opportunity to provide governors with filtered news/articles/adverts/ notes on good practice etc via email that give them valid questions to ask at meetings. Questions such as: does the school attend TeenTech events, has the school requested STEM Ambassadors to do workshops, has Big Maths been looked at, has mindfulness been considered, has anyone attended a Digital Eagles programming workshop and is SAP going to be used for assessments will tell heads and chairs that we are well informed about recent offerings and enable us to ask more challenging questions. This could of course have been instigated by the nga, SGOSS, DOIT or TES but has not happened. How many governors feel this would be of help ?
